-photo jon huntsman got in the race. jim? >> i'm jon huntsman, and i'm running for president of the united states. we're not just choosing new we're not just choosing new leaders. we're choosing whether we are to be yesterday's story or tomorrow's. >> stephen: of course jon huntsman intends to be tomorrow's story. because for him, yesterday's story is, "hey, i work for barack obama." [laughter] and then huntsman perfectly described true americans. >> people secure in their rights and in love with their liberty. >> stephen: yes, i'm passionately in love with my liberty! i'd say i lust for it. [laughter] we have a very vigorous physical relationship. liberty and i. sometimes we role play. she dresses up as socialism and i spank her with a rolled-up constitution. [laughter] and even though she doesn't always reach happiness, she's assured me that just pursuing it is good enough. [laughter] [cheers and applause] so i like him. only problem is, huntsman has a face and a name. and right now, obama leads all specific republican candidates in the polls, even beating the romney. thankfully, the rep
. michelle bachmann is the only other candidate in double digits. bad news in the poll for jon huntsman. 2% of the vote. hundredsman can't catch a break in the endorsement game. his former chief of staff, utah congressman and future senator is endorsing mitt romney calling him more lectable. interesting number for you this morning in iowa. iowa republicans are souring on ethanol subsidies. in a new poll conducted by consumer voter research, for the iowa republican 47% of likely republican caucus goers have a very or somewhat positive view of a candidate who wants to cut ethanol subsidies. 24% have a negative reaction to that. finally overnight, tim pawlenty's numbers got higher. he's bringing in the daughter of mike huckabee to run his campaign. she helped put together that campaign in iowa for her dad to win the caucuses and finish second in the straw poll. in an effort to engage the young and tech savvy the president is holding a tweet up this afternoon. topic is the economy and jobs but the thousands of 140 character or less queries submitted versus the ask obama hash tag includes marij
for jon huntsman. new polling puts the former ambassador at the back of the pack which could be why the white house seems to be focussing on a different exgovernor. at the bloomberg breakfast david, senior obama advisor took aim at mitt romney calling him a world class distortionist. i was sitting there at that breakfast. you don't expect direct answers to questions, but this was just tloup out there -- thrown out there. clearly they think that he is the guy to beat. >> i think there's no question that romney's stronger today than most i think professional class folks would have thought he would have been two months ago. the fundraising isn't as small as it was last cycle for romney it's stronger than the rest of the field. he's in strong position in new hampshire. he's the front runner. test hooth unbeatable. right now i don't think we have a candidate that's putting a strong challenge to romney. i think that's mie perry has a chance. >> if you talk to white house people they say it's an uncertain field. they don't know what rick perry is going to do. they don't know the michele ba
. >>> next up, where is the loyalty? a one-time chief of staff to jon huntsman has passed over his former boss and endorsed mitt romney. his reasoning -- he's uniquely positioned to beat barack obama. he broke the news it was a little awkward. >>> speaking of awkward, it was just personal. apparently in new jersey last week governor chris christie used his line-item veto to strike funding for certainly health and social programs. the reaction from steve sweeney -- i wanted to punch him in his head. you know who he reminds me you have? mr. potter from "it's a wonderful life." that's what senator convenery called him. they're a longtime bipartisan allies. they put out a statement yesterday while saying wheel sweeney's comments were disrespectful, christie stands ready to work with him going forward. >>> the number of women in congress dropped for the first time in 30 years. whatever reason, the new york rising star, senator kirsten jill brand wants to reverse that trend. she joints us next. you're watching "hardball," only on msnbc. introducing the schwab mobile app. it's schwab at your fin

happened when mitt romney and jon huntsman crossed path on the fourth of july parade in new hampshire. can you stand the excitement? that's next on the sideshow. you're watching "hardball" on msnbc. 8gg@ú >>> back to "hardball" and now to the "sideshow" return of the know nothings. foreign policy experience. who needs it? here ' 2012 hopeful herman cain, never held elective office, yet on the "today" show show. >> and i'm already talking to national security people. former intelligence people. talking to former generals and people in the military, to begin to develop ideas about how i would deal with those crises that we're in. you don't need foreign policy experience to know who your friends are and who your enemies are and you don't need foreign policy experience to know that you don't tell your enemy what your next move is. >> what you don't know won't hurt you, we're getting what i don't know won't hurt you. it's preposterous, but maybe in this environment, mildly sellable. remember, sarah palin sells a version of it and millions are buying it. >>> next, when candidates collide. mitt

as well. tim pawlenty, 3%. jon huntsman, who has staked a lot of his campaign on winning new hampshire and had this big rollout with a lot of media coverage, only at 2% at this point. he is right there with herman cain and newt gingrich. surprising numbers there and very good numbers for mitt romney. we mentioned in that poll there, tim pawlenty, he also is not doing very well in that poll. he is hoping, obviously, to win iowa where is he staking all of his campaign and brought what is basically a pretty good political young gun on his squad, sarah huckabee sanders, the doubt of mike huckabee, who won the iowa caucuses back in 2008, she has joined his campaign. so you can say that tim pawlenty is looking for some huck luck. and sarah huckabee was a big part of the huckabee campaign and will be a big part of pawlenty's campaign. if pawlenty will do well in iowa, sarah huckabee will be a big bet to help him because right now, he needs all of the help he can get. >> jim acosta, thanks. your next political update in an hour. always get all of the political news 24/7 at cnn/politics.com. >>
jon kyl from arizona. as you know, he was part of the talk with vice president biden said that text revenue -- tax revenue increases have been on the table. not tax increase but the tax revenue have. listen to this and i want you to respond. >> it has been on the table. we have been talking about increased revenues. we're not talking about increasing taxes. if the government sells something and gets money from it, that is revenue. if there is a user fee of some kind. if we want to raise it to keep up with the times, that is revenue. if you add up the revenues that we have agreed to, we republicans agreed to, it's between 150 and $200 billion. >> bret: so the statement that republicans are putting a gun to the head that they are not coming to the table with anything, is that disingenuous? >> well, listen, i was obviously at the table for the biden talks. we have a commitment we don't talk about what was said and not said in the room. i think there is no question that you have had many republican leaders make comments like no revenues at all. if that is wrong, we welcome that. as the
tim pawlenty and jon huntsman are barely hanging on. and newt gingrich's campaign is on life support. so is this it? or is michele bachmann emerging as the tea party's battering ram against the willard mitt romney? joining me now is richard wolfe and with me, editor at large for salon.com, joan walsh. let me ask you first. is the bachmann threat a real threat, richard? >> well, she is a threat herself to mitt romney. but i actually think the space that she represents is more of a threat. look, she needs to call donald trump to figure out how this movie ends. can you rise very quickly on this kind of platform and then you sink very quickly. but what she is showing and what trump showed before her is that there is space for a populist insurgeant type of tea party candidate who can capture the spirit driving the base here. i personally don't think it will be her. i think it is going to be someone like rick perry or sarah palin but she is peaking too early. the one thing you don't do is too early in the summer before. >> are they waiting joan for another tea party hero to come from the w
is kind of late to the game. he delegated this to joe biden. eric cantor, jon kyl left those talks when it became apparent that they weren't making progress. so finally the president took personal ownership and responsibility. i'm glad he did because only he and john boehner and mitch mcconnell are going to be able to leach a deal. there's not much time left to do that. i hope they go big. i hope we take advantage of this opportunity rather than have to deal with a piecemeal approach. >> woodruff: if democrats are prepared to give ground on entitlements on medicare and medicaid why can't republicans give some ground on the question of taxes especially, you know, we're talking about corporate taxes, doing away with tax breaks for people who own private jets? >> we're happy to talk to the president about tax reform, which is a commission, the simpson-bowles commission last december recommended. a lot of that is a good place to have a good extended discussion and to make our tax code flatter, fairer and simpler and also to make our companies more competitive when it comes to job creation h
been active in recent months. they have been having negotiations. eric cantor and jon kile walk out of negotiations with joe biden. the second round is a bit of a sham, nobody's position has moved and it has a lot to do with the white house wanting to show clearly ant correctly that they are the ones reaching out. but at this point i don't think there's a whole lot more that the president could be doing. both parties are basically positioning themselves for the day when the actual consequences of not raising the debt ceiling begin to manifest and public pressure or market pressure mounts forcing one side or the other to break. >> talk about consequences. if the republicans here agree to even modest tax increases, even by letting the bush tax cuts expire as you were just mentioning, will they have to pay the piper later on, come 2012? >> they have very, very difficult intirnl party politics. raising taxes on the rich is most popular thing you can do on the deficit. poll after poll shows as long as my taxes aren't going up that's a good way but for john boehner may not keep his speake
poll with the first primary state of new hampshire. the numbers are not so good for candidates like jon huntsman and newt gingrich who were the unromneys. it's no surprise romney is taking some abuse from democrats who hope the governor had conflicting comments on the economy >> i didn't say things were worse. the economy has not turned around. >> what are this president has done has slowed the economy. he didn't create the recession, but he made it worse. >> worry some as the key pillars see him as a front-runner by default. the tea party activists would like to see other choices. >> my prediction is that somebody emerges to fill the vacuum. the true fiscal conservative in the race >> here doesn't fit the bill. you are waiting for a tea party savior. >> we are not waiting. we are shopping. >> not all are sold either. >> there those who see his record when he was governor of massachusetts. he was not consistent with the platform that he ran on four years ago >> republicans note the gop has a tradition will nominating front-runners when the party thinks it's their turn. >> we're saw it w
% and jon huntsman with the excitement of his launch, 2%. romney, sticking his economic message and letting the craziness go on around him. >> they have run a very good opening portion of their campaign except one part of it. i'm surprised at the money. it's under $20 million. while it lasts, it's fine in compareson. four years ago, he was less known. you wonder where is the establishment. there's still a pot of money sitting on the sidelines that has gone to no one. maybe they are waiting for an alternative or say romney is figuring this out, he's on message, fine. all of a sudden, the second quarter number for romney is greater than the first. that could put away the race earlier than expected. that's the one part that surprises me. romney failed to ignite the money crowd around him and he's been flawless on message. >> the twitter town hall, we must clarify, the questions are twittered in. tweeted in. >> and the president doesn't type. >> it's not 140 characters. >> no hash tags. >> all right. what is the point behind it? a new way of reaching out and social networking. it hey, look at t
on a diet. i'm going to add calories to my excluded food intake." unquote. that was jon stewart. he hit the nail on the head. for sure it's easy to make fun but what the president is trying to do with tax expenditures is no laughing matter. liberals talk about tax expenditures as though they were just getting rid of wasteful spending. first, as a legal matter, tax expenditures are not spending. outlays are checks cut from the treasury department are defined as spending under the congressional budget act. that's what spending is. yet, most tax expenditures only lose revenue and do not include an outlay portion. tax expenditures that only lose revenue contain no spending as defined by the congressional budget act and is scored by the official scorekeepers for congress. the joint committee on taxation and the congressional budget office. and second, as a policy matter twhe comes to tax -- when it comes to tax expenditures, one person's loophole is another person's opportunity to save for college and retirement, finance a home and ties to your -- taoeugts -- tithes to your church. reducing
